Reducing poverty by moving Poor people to Rich Neighborhoods

One of the best and cheapest solutions to long term poverty is moving poor people to rich neighborhoods.

New Jersey was ordered to create just such a plan i 1983 but has resisted.

This paper studies the effect of the Mount Laural ruling in New Jersey in 1983 and the subsequent creation of the Ethel Lawrence Homes in Mount Laurel, NJ

The paper called: "Lessons from Suburbia in Standford Universities Pathways Spring 2013" documents a model of why residents have lower mental stress levels and higher achivement in school.
